description:

This image scanned from page 61 of the 1921 Arbutus yearbook. The caption reads, in full: " 'Babe' Pierce's last year was his greatest. It will be many another season before there comes to Indiana University a varsity football center of the size and calibre of Pierce. For four years he has been a line bastion. Combined with his tremendous weight, he possessed speed and savage tackling. He became invincible toward the close of the season, and was a wonder at roving center in the Notre Dame and Purdue games. He outclassed all other centers in the state last season."

This image, along with an article about Pierce, appears on page 2 of the November 6, 1926 edition of The Indiana Alumnus.
